In what row are you living your life?

I saw this photo on Facebook today and just felt compelled to share. The caption: “How Do you live  your life? Are you in the first row or the third?”

Indulge me for a moment and take a long look at the photo to your left.

Clearly no one is partying in the third row.

Which begs to ask… In the grand scheme of life, where would you say you sit? Or better yet, where would you like to sit?


In my opinion, front row riders are:

  • Passionate
  • Fun loving
  • Free spirited
  • Fearless

As for me, I’d classify myself as a second row rider. I enjoy the ride but really get a kick out of watching the folks in the front casting their cares aside and living their lives with passion (and a wicked sense of humor). As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have a tendency to stifle my own spirit of the name of being  inappropriate or living up to other’s expectations.

I’m really tired of doing that.

Do you ever find your own self hesitating? Ever wished you would have grabbed an opportunity instead of staying in the safe zone? Ever yearned to throw caution to the wind, let loose and let yourself have fun?

I don’t know about you but I’m thinking it is time to move up to the front row.
